Thematic albums have proven popular with many classical musicians in a stifling world filled with intimidating masterpieces. Here, violinist Lisa Batiashvili takes us on an autobiographical journey, mapping out important places and memories of her life and career through music, from her native Georgia to Paris, Berlin, Buenos Aires and Hollywood.


In these very romantic arrangements by Nikoloz Rachveli layered with nostalgic sound effects from films, the virtuoso violinist pays a special tribute to Charles Chaplin with the music he composed and used in his films, beginning with City Lights, after which she named the album. “Chaplin was very popular in Georgia when I was a child. He was a multi-talent, not only acting and making movies but writing gorgeous music. For me, he represents the beauty and creative imagination of the 20th century”.


The choice of music in this album is very personal, with pieces ranging from Bach to Astor Piazzolla, Johann Strauss, Michel Legrand and many others. Joining Lisa Batiashvili are fellow Georgian singer Katie Melua, guitarist Miloš Karadaglić and German jazz trumpeter Till Brönner. © François Hudry/Qobuz
